Kaya & Blank is a US-based Turkish-German artist duo whose work explores the ways in which humans shape and inhabit the world. Their research heavy approach is deeply rooted in documentary practices. However, by pushing the boundaries of how reality can be depicted, they transcend the domain of representation and create completely independent, often hyperreal visual worlds. As a result, the boundaries between reality and fiction in their work become blurred. Their projects often focus on traces of economic infrastructures and how neoliberal politics determine the ways we live.
